Meet the Team: Buying Department
27-08-2021 Blog, The Team
Clarendon Homes has evolved and expanded greatly since being formed over 20 years ago. Over the next few weeks we will be introducing you to some of our office departments, to give an insight into the company from the staff’s perspective, exploring our team culture, favourite developments and more! This week we introduce our Buying department …
David joined the office earlier this year, taking on the role of Buyer which means he makes sure we have everything we need to be able to construct our lovely homes! He previously worked for the UK’s largest national builder’s merchant for 35 years, with his last role there being a Branch Manager. David is an avid football fan, and last year went to five out of England’s seven Euro 2020 games (including semi-final and final). He is always up for a chat about anything football related!
